I'm never sure how pissing off all the drivers in town really advances the cause of bike friendliness. People aren't sitting in their cars thinking, "you know, I should ride my bike too." They're thinking, "Get the fuck out of my way." I'm all for bikes, but this just always seemed really damn self-righteous. Especially doing it at rush hour.
@3 - Well, but anyone with kids did live some part of their life without kids, so it's not really the same thing. Someone who has never had kids has never experienced it, while someone who does have kids has experienced plenty of life without kids, so they have a pretty decent idea of what that's like. They don't know what it's like to live their ENTIRE life without kids, but that's fairly academic, isn't it? Not experiencing something for another day or year typically isn't markedly different from not experiencing it thus far.
Anyone's choice to have or not have kids is fine by me, but there's no question that people who have kids have experienced something that people don't haven't. The fault is in assuming that experience is crucial to having a "full" life.
The iPhone voice and data plan is pretty much identical to the voice and data plans for every other comparable phone from AT&T or other carriers. Mobile phone contracts suck, to be sure, but this isn't anything new, nor anything Apple has any control over. Someone please tell me about a cell phone network that costs "half as much per month." And if you think there's another phone that's comparable in features and usability to the iPhone, I'd like to see that too.
Irrational iPhone hating is just as silly as irrational iPhone loving.
Elvis and the Importers will be a great show, but Sting notwithstanding, The Police fucking rock. You've never seen a better drummer than Stewart Copeland.
